Gardens Don’t Wait On Whim

Gardens don’t wait on whim, or even on convenience. It’s a lesson new gardeners have to learn and experienced ones are reminded of every season. Gardens have to be tended And–their tending does not always conform to our schedules. Think of a garden a bit like a pet. It is a living, growing, changing organism. Just as you reconcile yourself to your pet’s needs for attention and care you must also be aware of your garden. If you are too busy to walk your dog or are planning a vacation, you find someone to care for your pet . You should do the same for your garden. That is one of the great benefits of belonging to a Community Garden. There are lots of people available and willing to pitch in. Get to know the gardeners around you and don’t forget you can contact me, the garden steward at any time for help.
